Subject: G Fn Dammit!
I most certainly prefer auds and this is one of the greatest auds I've ever heard. Though I must say, a little too excellent. Sounds like somebody had some real good access for this one. ;)
However, I'm not sure who stood in for Bill and Mickey. And it sounds like Bobby should've left the Esau alone from the night before.
Dammit this blows. I really wanted to dl this one. :(
So 5 star taping, 2 star performance= 3 stars rating.

Its not a mind blowing show, but they were on. Well worth the listen/download.
Subject: East meets West
Loved the split Other one!!! Funky stairs!! Lotsa' space to free freak. I am glad to have such dedicated tapers to allow me to flash today many years later! Bless you and all of ours!
Subject: Trippin' on the strip
I got into Vegas the night before, and stumbled onto the Strip with nothing but a back pack....no plan at all. Ran into a fellow Head who turned me onto his Uncle 'Cid. He also had some of those prism glasses with him.....I walked the Strip with a 6 pack of Heineken on acid looking through these glasses. Mind blowin' fun. We eventually met this girl working in a Dennys that was a Dead Head and she let us stay at her apartment. Can you imagine such great fortune meeting this kindred spirit?
The next day I met my friends and we prepared for the show at hand. Someone has me on video brushing my teeth with a Heineken (didn't have any water) and got kicked out of the Aladdin casino for not having any shoes on. People were paging Jerry over the casino intercom. It was a sight...Dead Heads in a sea of tie dye amongst the pristine lawns of the Aladdin. This was my sixth Dead show and it was a total blast. Every song was well played and the selection very nice. Man the doses in those days sure were good. We were treated to some of the now legendary 4 way black stars from Texas........those were the daze my friends! Thanks to every one who made this a memorable evening.

It's kind of muddy sounding but the bass drums have a certain thuddiness that shoots my big toe right through my wool socks.
The Scarlet and Estimated's are the highlights for me. Bobby is on fire. Jerry sounds like he's burned to a freaking crisp for some hard partying the night before, but Bobby refuses to let him get off easy. Bobby virtually pulls Jerry's pants off during the Estimated solo with some serious power chords (love the audience reaction!) and Jerry responds by bending over and giving the audience a sonic fruitbowl.
Plus it's in Vegas. Imagine wandering the strip tripping your freaking balls off after this show. Or before. ;)
Subject: Nice show
Subject: Great aud sound
And the setlist and performance are excellent also. Everyone seems in good form (I'm streaming Stella Blue right now, and Jer's in fine voice). It's not a trippy '72 show, it's '83 after all, but a very good '83. Haven't heard the whole thing yet, but this one definitely gets burned to CD.
Subject: too much audio
Subject: I was looking for this...
